Every once in a while, it’s nice to switch it up from the predictable beer, or the sophisticated cocktail, and do something different. It might be at a bar with a close friend, or maybe it’s about rolling out trays of shots at your intimate gathering because you feel like spicing up the party a little bit.
Whatever you want to do, there is some value in passing out some sweet shots that taste like candy. That’s where candy corn oranges come into the picture. While there are all sorts of Jello-shots, Candy Corn Oranges actually use a natural mold, which makes it an extremely unique way to celebrate the night.
